Toronto’s CN Tower improves views with floor-to-ceiling dynamic glass windows

The glass darkens in proportion to the sun’s intensity to produce a reduction of heat and glare inside the building.

Looking out the CN Tower's new glass

Recently installed dynamic windows in the CN Tower observation deck include Prel-Shade Thermochromic Glass, from Suntuitive.

The dynamic glass, which was used in floor-to-ceiling windows, is sun-responsive and gradually darkens as the sun heats it. The glass darkens in proportion to the sun’s intensity to produce a reduction of heat and glare inside the building. As the sun’s intensity wanes, the glass transitions back to a clear state.
